Accessing an EJB 3.1 Singleton Bean with @Startup from a Servlet in the Same JVM Instance

I am building a project whereby I have a Singleton Bean that I want to fire up when the .jar is deployed in the EJB container, thus I have it annotated as follows:

package com.ryanchapin.ejbTest

@Startup
@Singleton

public class SingletonTest{}

Of course, I have the requisite Local and Remote interfaces set, up, I’ve just left that off for brevity.? I am attempting to do a JNDI lookup, from a Servlet in the same JVM using the Local interface which results in:

22:14:31,481 ERROR

When I lookup the Remote interface JNDI name in the Servlet it works just fine.? This only occurs if I have the bean annotated with @Startup.? If I remove the @Startup annotation I can access the EJB via the local interface without a problem.

Perhaps a bug in Jboss-6.0.0, I’m not sure.? For the time-being I am just going to use the remote interface.
